Starting to look like a baby!

I just got back from my first OB appointment and man was that alot of information to digest! DH and I were there for 2 hours. We got to have a look at Lucky...who is measuring at 9w0d. I'm 9w1d, so he's right there. Heart rate was 183 bpm. The tech said it was a little low...but I'm not worried...my pulse is always on the lower end as well. After the u/s we met with the nurse who "interviewed" us. History etc. She was asking if we had a pedicatrician in mind...whether I wanted an epidural at delivery etc...I was like, I haven't thought that far in advance yet. I just want to make it out of the 1st trimester...then I'll start thinking about those types of things!

I am going to be considered "special care" since I'm an IVF patient. Fine by me. I'll also have to have the GD test at 16 weeks because of my current weight. I knew my BMI would call for that, so it wasn't a surprise. It was a great, informative appointment. I have another next week for my OB physical. Oi.

So without further ado...(these are pics of pics so sorry for the quality)

Okay, I am NOT a doctor, but 183 bpm is not low!!!!

Glad you had a great appointment and that things are right on track! And good luck w that GD test.... I get mine in another 4 weeks.

183 is a high heart rate. It's actually on the higher range of a good heart rate. Unless you meant to type 138, then it's still within the normal range. (120-180)I wouldn't listen to that tech!

I definitely agree with what the others said about the heartrate! That's actually quite high! :)

Your little lucky is absolutely adorable!

I agree with the others. That tech didn't know what she was talking about. So glad the appointment went well!
